Steel "I" beams going up on the roof
To support the onion dome and bay windows, two fifty-foot steel I-beams were installed spanning the building's North/South walls. Eight smaller I-beams make up a framework from which the bay windows will be hung, and the dome will be placed.


“Piece of cake” says the crane operator,
after the two main beams are placed.
